Just after the viral marketing for the indie sci-fi flick The Signal kicked off last week, we got the first trailer for the film that debuted at the Sundance Film Festival. Now a second poster has arrived for the film, and it's pretty trippy. A walking, radiation-suited figure (maybe Laurence Fishburne) is given a kaleidoscopic effect, and it's just a stylish image that catches the eye and even creates a bit of mystery. This is such a cool movie, and we hope audiences will seek it out this summer and enjoy the ominous feel, the twists and turns, and just an original sci-fi flick amongst a pool of franchises, sequels and reboots. Look!
Here's the new poster for William Eubank's The Signal from Focus Features (click for large version):
The Signal is directed by William Eubank (Love), who also co-wrote the script with newcomers Carlyle Eubank and David Frigerio. Nick (Brenton Thwaites) and Jonah (Beau Knapp) are MIT freshmen and serious hackers. While driving through Nevada with Nick’s girlfriend, Hailey (Olivia Cooke), they follow rival hacker Nomad’s clues to a location 180 miles away. After a terrifying confrontation with Nomad in the desert, the trio regain consciousness in captivity, are forced to confinement and discover they are part of something unbelievable. Focus Features releases the Sundance selected film in limited theaters June 13th.
